Charlotte Ranked One of The Best Cities

Charlotte Was Just Ranked One Of The Best Places To Live In America by US News & World Report

The Queen City is now officially one of the top 20 cities to live in the USA, according to the U.S. News & World Report. Our official rank was #15, beating out Atlanta at #61, Tampa at #42, Honolulu at #26, Nashville at #22, and even Charleston at #19.

The publication analysed the top 100 most populous cities in America, by comparing each one’s quality of life, value, job market, desirability and net migration. Charlotte achieved an overall score of 6.9 out of 10 (the #1 city on the list, Denver, only scored a 7.8).

The report comments that, “Charlotte has become a place filled with new restaurants to try and events that attract people from all over. It’s a standalone destination city now, no longer living in the shadow of Atlanta or Charleston, South Carolina.”

Charlotte  now has the second fastest growth rate of small businesses in the nation. 

The study looked at 150 of the largest cities across America and in the end, Charlotte ranked as the seventh-best city to start a business, beating out Boston, Raleigh, Houston, and Atlanta.
